Nobody thinks I'm funny when I say "Ivan" ee-VAHN, like the tsar. What I know is that we're settling in for "duration rain event" numero duo, which is code for "Hope you don't live in the flood plane." And for me it also means a duration sinus event, since my head seems to compensate for low atmospheric pressure by increasing mucus production. More than you wanted to know, I know.
And of course because the storm came in in the middle of the night, I missed the live reporting from my hero Stephanie Abrams in Mobile. Hard to imagine that this could beat her coverage during Frances with her techie holding her legs to the ground so her Weather Channel jacket wouldn't carry her away like a parasail, during Frances.
